I am not for war, but is it sometimes necessary? Ask Americans why we are at war and you will get different answers.
We provide healthcare for other countries when thousands of Americans can't afford insurance. We put our troops in danger for another country's "freedom". We have alliances that make enemies of other countries. We supply and support Israel. All for what? How exactly does this benefit America?
Should we continue doing what we have been doing or should we just stay over here and mind our own business? I am eager to see how other atheists view this.
From Atheist Exile in earlier posts in this discussion:Quote 1
It's about resources. Many elderly die every year during cold snaps or heat waves.Quote 2
Use your head. How many people would die without heating oil?
So let's turn these circumstances around, hypothetically: How many Americans would it be ok for foreigners to come to America to kill, assuming they just needed to guarantee they could obtain America's heating oil to stay warm?
The US never has had "isolationist" policies, at least not since about the time the Americans discovered Cuba. That is just political lingo, like for example "Vietnam syndrome" to (successfully) try to exclude the foreign politics the American public would prefer if they were able to rationally consider their options.
